My mate Kevin lives in North Sweden and is the best bushcrafter I know. He recently made a great looking ice fishing rod out of some antler.

Very good. The design of it is excactly the same as people here use when they make their own in wood. Ice fishing season is kicking off now that the sun is back, so i just may make one.
People stopped making them, because of all the chap plastic ones that where in favour. But these are just as good or better. I will knock one up tomorrow I think :-)

It was my Janie who suggested to him to start a blog. He is always up to something crafty. Since he bought Abbe Osrams old cabin he hasn't looked back, and is in bushcraft heaven out there.
I guess you remember him from BcUK Sam..


Don't forget to take some pics Rune. Do you do much ice fishing..?
